On the Road to Cloverdale



Last Friday night was the last night my daughter was performing in "The Tempest". They had taken the show on the road up to Cloverdale where the theater company was putting on two performances to raise money for the new Cloverdale Performing Arts Center. Since the new arts center is not yet complete, they performed in the old Grange Hall.



It was my daughter's last performance before heading back to college so naturally, being the obsessive fans that we are, the family hopped in the car and drove to the little town of Cloverdale.

Since we had to drop Bri at the theater early so she could get ready for the show, the rest of us took a stroll downtown to the Friday night Farmer's Market. There was a band playing and the mood was pretty mellow.



Cloverdale, I discovered, had a lot of public sculpture around the town square that was really fun.

I loved the big green lady,

both fore



and aft.



The giant wire man that hung from the side of a building was way cool.



I thought the Tin Man was cute.



And I adored the lines of the Spider.



But most of all, I loved the dragon.

    Hope your daughter doesn't go to school too far away, it's hard to miss the doggone kids!
